Transforming health through collaboration
High quality and safe healthcare is best delivered by a team that works in collaboration with the person receiving care and with each other.
Interprofessional collaborative healthcare is of increasing importance for effective and appropriate responses to social and health inequities, the rising prevalence of chronic health conditions and global pandemics. There is indisputable evidence that interprofessional education and collaborative practice makes positive differences and better outcomes for people receiving healthcare, communities, and health professionals.
At the University of Melbourne our new Collaborative Practice Centre's mission is to to be a catalyst for collaborative practice in our health care system, equipping current and future teams for patient-centred care and improved health outcomes.
